As humans, we are made up of 60% water. Not only does it keep our bodies hydrated, but it also regulates our electrolyte levels and is involved in every biochemical reaction in the body.

As parents, we have the influential power to teach our kids good habits. So why expose them to all these sugary beverages in the first place?
💧
We are creatures of our environment, and are constituents of an even larger ecosystem. Like plants, we need water, sunlight, nourishment, oxygen, and a pure environment to grow and thrive.
💧
Think about this: If you have a house plant that is wilting/dying, what would you do?
💧
One would think to give the plant more water and change its environment by exposing it to more sunlight or pot it in new mineral-rich soil to support its growth, right?
💧
But Tyler, changing the environment is too much work. Why not just glue the pedals back on? Won’t it look good as new?
💧
Maybe, from the outside it may look fine. But if we don’t support the environment of the plant or find out the underlying root cause of its illness, the pedals will fall right back off in time and the plant will eventually die.
💧
This metaphor is analogous to our current medical model. There is no emphasis on prevention and instead of practicing “health” care we practice “sick” care.
💧
It’s not until there is a diagnosable “disease” and we are really ill that conventional medical professionals intervene. And when they do, they often look to surgically modify or sew those petals back on, with little to no emphasis on our environment and educating their patients.
💧
So many of us are making sodas (diet sodas), juice, energy drinks, and sports beverages the core of our hydration when in reality, the human body just needs water.
💧
Not only are we taking in large amounts of insulin spiking processed sugars, but we are acidifying and dehydrating the body.
💧
Often times, when we are tired, we overlook the importance of water and that we could simply be dehydrated.
💧
Remember, your beverage choices are just as important as your food choices.
